In fact, her head being stuck may have prevented her from falling the 24 floors to the ground.

According to local media reports, the alarm was raised on Saturday by a neighbour who heard the little girl crying.

 She had apparently been locked in on her own at her home, in Daye, Hubei province, central China.

Firefighters and police broke into the flat, while a local resident, suspended by a rope tied around his waist, climbed out of an adjacent window to help the child.

He put his arm around the child as she teetered on the edge of the railings, and wrapped a blanket behind her, to take some weight off her feet.

Her shoes were barely on anymore after standing for some time on the narrow rail, her head stuck and bent forward through the bars.

Emergency services eventually got access to the terrified little girl from a window close to where she was stuck. They used bolt cutters to free her before carefully pulling her back to safety.
